Create multiple apps from same workspace infect from same Dataset without replicating the dataset multiple times. only option we have now is to update the app and only one app per workspace can be created which a kind of restrict the workspace usability. If we can create multiple apps share it with different users without creating multiple workspace ... means same dataset no dataset replication, will save the storage as well.

March 2022 update: we plan to have a private preview soon and hopefully release to the public in July

Yes, apps would become a lot more useful with this.

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

Let one app workspace publish more than one app.
Currently one app workspace can create one app. I would like to suggest letting one app workspace create multiple apps, because the multiple apps might have some datasets in common but have different report and dashboards created for different end user levels.

This would be a life savior, even in our "small" org (around 100 users).

We need this at our firm to avoid duplicating the datasets and reports

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

I understand the comments around duplicating "reports", but for those talking about duplicating data sets have you all considered what the Guy in A Cube Channel Recommends and using Power BI as a data source?

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

This would be so beneficial in limiting report/dataset duplication. In some cases I have up to three duplicate reports when I need different groups to be able view the same report. Due to this, any updates/edits I make need to be published three separate times.

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

We need this feature, because some dashboard need to be duplicate in a lot of apps, more thant that, it will help the security, because I don't want all user to see the same reports.
